Amazing Trip - once in a life time - Thank you Kilimanjaro Tours
The value was our main attraction.
Initially I wasn't sure going with www.kilimanjarotours.co.uk instead of a big company was the right thing. It initially did feel like a gamble. But as the trip got nearer, Bejal made us felt that the personal one to one service was perfect, especially when we had concerns with timing on the mountain. You were there on tap to help sort everything out and give any personal support. Thanks again.
The Fact you are a family business did reinsurance us of our booking .
Really liked how the trip was tailored with the safari and your suggestion for the extra time and cost.
Your support and advice was excellent, and pre event I felt that I could call you and ask anything.
The travel pack was fantastic, great idea!
On site all the staff were amazing the guides, porters, chef and every one at the Mountain Inn again was fantastic. Briefings were good. Everything was all done to time and with first class service. Rooms great, food amazing, bar and pool area very relaxing and enjoyable. Quality of tents, 4x4s all again, spot on.
Safari trip was great. . The guide and chef were great. Campsite really good. Again we have to search the web to get details about the site. But again a fantastic experience for myself and Tom.
Overall it was all above mine and Tom expectations. Travelling to Africa for the first time can be quite nervous and the build you to the climb again can be a bit scary. We definately made the right choice to go with you guys. 10/10. Value and quality of service and logistics were fantastic.
The guides were very good. I would definitely recommend them to another group. They were always available for questions and when we wanted to learn more Swahili they were ready to teach us. The guides were also on time for everything from the warm water and tea in the morning, meal time, hiking time, etc. Rocky and Remy were always friendly and aware of the group, its needs, and pace.
The transportation was always on time and ready to go. The food was good, given the circumstances that they had to carry it all. It would have been nice to have a little more variety, but they are familiar with what is easy to carry, able to be cooked at altitude, and high energy for the hike.
The guide was very good. Rob knew his directions and animals. It would have been nice at times to be in the active/lead pack as compared to getting there after the other cars. The other thing would be to move closer as compared to letting the other cars get the inside spot for pictures. He was not pushy with telling us where we would go nor how much time we would spend at a location.
The hotels were nice and food was good. If there were a recommendation for other tourists, it would be to have an extra day, or half day in the hotel. This would allow you to relax and take advantage of the hotel amenities. Additionally, it would allow you to start the safari earlier. Each day seemed that it took a few hours to get to the location and the animal activity is different in the middle of the day when it is hot, compared to the morning when it is cooler. The lunch boxes were interesting but it appeared the same for all tour groups.
Naftael, our chief guide was undoubtedly very experienced and knowledgeable – and got us all to the summit – so he had to be good. He was quite strict, which has to be the case – in terms of time keeping etc – but he told us to tell ourselves we MUST reach the summit – said it was down largely to our own will power which it is to a large extent. His assistant, David, was a delightful, friendly fellow, I think Naftael’s nephew – lovely smiley fellow who led most of the way – apart from the final ascent. They were the perfect combination
Safari was FANTASTIC. The drive from Moshi to Ngorongoro was very long – but fascinating going by rural Tanzanian life – I was fascinated by all the herdsmen, villages, Massai clothing etc – could have stopped in every village for photos! Highlights were the view from accommodation verandah, seeing an elephant before we even gt to the crater. Being close up to a magnificent pride of lions was unbelievable
